The quilt show has returned for 2018!
The Thimbles and Threads Quilt Guild had its beginning in 1997 with members meeting monthly in local churches and with holding an annual quilt show during the West Virginia Folk Festival. It is during the show that various projects and demonstrations are shared with Festival goers. Ribbons are awarded to exhibitors based on viewers’ choices in the various categories.
The guild provides many opportunities for learning the art of quilting and other needlework techniques. Members attend special workshops and shows as well as relying on their individual talents to produce many individual and group projects. Many members are active in the State of West Virginia Quilt Guild.
The group also helps other organizations in Gilmer County by constructing raffle quilts for special funding and to boost the guild’s funds for these various projects.
The guild invites everyone, at no charge, to our annual show in the United Methodist Church on Main Street. New members are welcome and donations to our projects are appreciated.
